Re: AGWANDA - BE A MAN AND APOLOGIZE FOR MAKING A MISTAKE
You and / or your agents attempted to solicit public acknowledgement for your struggles under the Moi government. Some members of the wider society readily bestowed titles and such other dues upon you. Some did not.
I am in the group that was not hastily converted based on the facts you presented and other personal standards. I see no reason for you be offended since you voluntarily entered the court of public opinion well aware of the strict standards thereon.
You make specific allegations that I "attacked you for nothing". Such statements are too relative to carry water in a non judicial arena and sincerely, in my world, what you call "attacked" I refer to as corrected. The burden is not on me to prove otherwise.
You further demand a public apology for what you call "mischievous attacks". Where is the mischief? As previously stated, the issue at hand is plain and simple! You attempted to inform the public of your "assumed titles" knowing too well that chances of a unanimous reception are not guaranteed. If having an opposing opinion is mischief, then democracy is at risk.
Osiepna, take heart as going by the public rejoinders thus far, I may be in the minority and also, my criticisms are solely based on the level of your participation on anti-Moi activities and not your otherwise recognizable capabilities as a leader.
In simple, there is no reason to "be man enough" to retract my initial opinions. It's just how it works in the court of public opinion. Some agree with you, others do not.
